It's called taking advantage and it's what winners do.
Other will stand around and cry “Oh my god, the situation is so bad, there's nothing we can do boo-hoo.”
As they hand you their money for a service you provide you will say “Yeah, I know. Times are tough for lots of folks right now. Just go ahead and sign right there.”
How to tell a winner from a loser:
A loser will say things like “Oh my god! I can't believe you took advantage of a bad situation!”
A winner will say with pride “I saw an opportunity in a bad situation and I took advantage of it.”
Opportunity usually exists in abundance in bad situations.
Put on your thinking caps and figure out how you can provide goods or services to the downtrodden and you will always have a market. The downtrodden will always be there whining about the bad situation, whining about people who take advantage, and handing out their money to the advantage takers.
Greed is good? No. Freedom is good.
Money is bad? Go ahead and give it to me then.
Debt slavery is for the downtrodden who buy it with zero down at only 7.9% interest for the first year. Financial freedom is for advantage takers.
The downtrodden didn't get that way because of a lack of opportunity. They got that way because they have a downtrodden mindset and always will until the day they die and then they'll pass that mindset on to their children.
The rich could lose all their wealth and gain it back within a year because it's all a mindset.
The downtrodden are losers in the game of money.
The rich are winners in the game of money.
You are going to play the game. You may as well play to win.
